Father, Where Art Thou? (R-Rated)
In a corner of a bar?
by Elena Plotkin
Having fun with a cigar?
Filling out some betting slips?
Wiping away a trace of ruby lips?
Emptying bottles into a glass?
Getting a hold of a little stash?
Figuring out the latest spread?
Holding the back of some woman's head?
Tipping over in a bar stool?
Acting like a total fool?
Cursing at the television?
Getting thrown into prison?
Wobbling home after passing out?
Taking some blow through the old snout?
Getting punched and kicked nearly to death?
Begging me for money with your last breath?
